Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Today's lunch special was a ball of fried ground chicken, a handul of french fries, and a spoonful of shredded cabbage salad, for €5.90. Included - tap water and bread (good, with hazlenuts, but no butter - seriously? this is the only place in Tartu...that offers bread that doesn't have butter!). However, the chicken ball was so over-salted that I had an aftertaste for 10 minutes. It's a health-hazard, a warning label should be on every table for people with hypertension to avoid it like the plague. Moreover, although unfortunately common to Estonian cuisine, there was a marked absence of any other herb or spice. There's not even pepper on the tables! I wanted to quietly point out these things to the manager, Liis, but I was told that she's too busy to come and meet me. Never, anywhere in the world I've eaten, has this been a response to a request for a manager.- On the other hand, not to be totally negative, the coffee shop and pastries, quiche, including vegan options, on the ground floor of this cafe have always been excellent. Hence my disappointment, indeed dismay, with the luch. Avoid the lunch! There are plenty of places in Tartu (especially Asian restaurants) that offer a tasty lunch (and not health risks) for around €5.More

Got recommendation to visit this cafe from friends. Very good service and tasty coffee and macaroons. I was in the rush and ordered as take away, but atmosphere inside seemed very nice - next time should try sit down and enjoy coffee there.

Super delicious cakes and cultivated coffee culture at affordable prices. Whether for a short coffee in between or for a longer break. Kaffee Werner is always a good address.

I visited for a late breakfast and was really happy with my delicious omelette, cocoa, great cakes (tried several, hehe) and lovely brunch cocktails. The service was very friendly and I also loved the historical feel of the place that they have kept after renovations....The chandeliers and paintings gave a cool art museum vibe! Breakfast menu had really good prices and the food was excellent!More

Had a "lunch" of pastry and tea which was excellent! Can be very busy and hard to find a seat, but worth it. I took a couple of pastries to go for later and they were excellent too. The next day I had dinner at...the upstairs cafe that is attached. So-so service as there was a large party in the next room. Food was good, but real star is their pastries downstairs.More

In Werner restaurant, ground floor they have loads of beautiful cakes etc, but we had our dinner at the first floor, a bit classic decorated. Very friendly staff. We had very good starter, (see the pic) elk carpaccio with moss, black garlic mayonnaise and green...tea powder. After a mild spicy pasta with chicken. We also lied that one. The price/quality ratio is very good. I recommend to go there.More

It's seldom one can find as large selection of cakes etc as at Werner's. The tables outdoors were nice place to relax while exploring the old Tartu. Afterwards I've learned also of many cultural figures frequenting this place already a century ago.
